Jesus was sent to “preach the good news of the kingdom of God”. His preaching is an epiphany of God, because His Word reveals the authority of His Cross and Resurrection, by which He has atoned for the sins of the world. By the preaching of His Gospel in every place, He silences the unclean spirits and casts out demons, heals the diseases of body and soul, and restores life and health to His creation.
Sound too good to be true for you? Want to know where to receive this epiphany? Seek Jesus’ Word. Hear it proclaimed into your life for the forgiveness of your sin. It is just as powerful and active today as it has ever been. Where all the works of Jesus are proclaimed, you can be sure that even the demons tremble that Jesus is the Son of God.
